RE: Glove Parts

Dear Mr. Varma:

This is in reference to your letter of August 29, 1990, requesting a classification and country of origin determination, under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), of cut leather glove parts to be imported from Hong Kong/China.

Custom's regulations require that sufficient information, including a sample of the merchandise at issue, accompany all requests for binding rulings. Based on the information in your letter, it appears that the component parts would be classifiable within heading 4104, HTSUSA. However, due to the variance in the processing of leathers, we cannot issue you a binding ruling without a sample.

In addition, a country of origin determination requires detailed information regarding the manufacturing process, as governed by Section 12.130 of the Customs Regulations. The following information is required for such a ruling:

1) the time involved in the various manufacturing or processing operations

2) the resulting changes after processing in each country

3) the complexity of the operations involved

4) the level or degree of skill and/or technology required at each stage of manufacture

You may resubmit your request with the required sample. Under the District Rulings Program, you are entitled to a decision within 30 days, unless referral to this office is deemed necessary, in which case a decision will be issued within 120 days of the receipt of your letter.
